Crete is special to me because it is such a beautiful mixture of sea, sky and mountains. The people are friendly, the food is wonderful and the climate is ideal.

Favourite restaurants in Crete: Itanos Restaurant, Agios Nikolaos - just off the main square with stuffed aubergines to die for!
Mythos Resaturant, Hersonissos - a bit out of the way, opposite an Irish bar; it was very busy but really friendly & wonderful food.
Old House, Malia - in the old town with a wonderful roof garden and lovely food.
Romantic Corner, Stalis - at the western end of Stalis right by the sea. Very friendly service and again fabulous food.
Hovoli Restaurant, Stalis - the first place we ate and it was lovely. Really good food and friendly service.

Favourite accommodation in Crete: I have only stayed in the Eri Studios in Stalis. Very comfortable with a nice pool.

Favourite beach in Crete: A small beach just east of Malia - it was a bit quieter than the main beaches and well away from any roads.
You have to see in Crete: Spinalonga Island - we went with Nostos Tours and had the benefit of a guide. It was a really intersting and enjoyable visit.

Night Life in Crete: -

Off the beaten path in Crete: -

When in Crete be careful about Getting hassled by people tring to get you into their bar/restaurant - particularly bad in Hersonissos.

Transportation: We used the bus and taxis - both very reliable and reasonably priced. Excellent bus conductors.

Cultural Tips: Learn at least a few words in Greek and use them. Remeber to slow down and take things as they come.

Favourite Links about Crete: This one!

Additional Comments: The food is out of this world! Favourites were baked aubergines, feta from the oven, stuffed tomatoes and kleftiko but everything was delicious. We also developed a real tase for Raki!
The quality of the fresh fruit & veg was fantastic.
